Riad has been beautifully decorated, service from helpful staff good. Could be great but the negatives brought it down. Getting to the place is a hassle carrying luggage but worthwhile to be staying within the Medina. I asked for instructions to get there which they should provide on the website rather than requiring a telephone call once you are near. Food for breakfast was very basic and only two proper tables - plenty on the roof but that was only used for dinner, which annoyingly was only served at one sitting 9pm.
I stayed in Yacout room, unpleasant mezzanine level room dark with very low ceilings about 6ft with the shower area and entrance to bathroom 5ft 8. The shower area was so dark and poorly lit I needed to use a torch to see. The website photos must have used powerful professional flashes. Also no cupboards, drawers or any hangers for clothes. The bed was not comfortable - extremely firm - like tightly compressed straw.
I would recommend the hotel but certainly not the room.
